Implementing Non-Trivial Containerized Systems – Part 4: Adding a Web Interface

This is the fourth part of a multi–part series on designing and building non-trivial containerized solutions. We’re making a radio station using off-the-shelf components and some home-spun software, all on top of Docker, Docker Compose, and eventually, Kubernetes. In this part, we’ve got a working system, our own rebuildable images, and a portable Docker Compose

Implementing Non-Trivial Containerized Systems – Part 3: Deploying Containers Together

This is the third part of a multi-part series on designing and building non-trivial containerized solutions. We’re making a radio station using off-the-shelf components and some home-spun software, all on top of Docker, Docker Compose, and eventually, Kubernetes. In this part, we’re going to take the notes we took during the last part (you did

Implementing Non-Trivial Containerized Systems – Part 2: Containerizing with Docker

This is the second part of a multi-part series on designing and building non-trivial containerized solutions. We’re making a radio station using off-the-shelf components and some home-spun software, all on top of Docker, Docker Compose, and eventually, Kubernetes. In this part, we’re going to take the architecture we cooked up in the last part, and

Implementing Non-Trivial Containerized Systems – Part 1: Picking Components

So, you want to start a radio station, eh? This is the first part of a multi-part series on designing and building non-trivial containerized solutions. We’re making a radio station using off-the-shelf components and some home-spun software, all on top of Docker, Docker Compose, and eventually, Kubernetes. In this part, we’re going to explore how

Implementing Non-Trivial Containerized Systems

Your average blog post / tutorial / video about containerizing software goes a little something like this: Trouble is, all that “simple Docker stuff” is where things can (and often do!) go horribly horribly wrong, and there is precious little material available out there on the Internet for helping you through those precarious bits. No

Detecting Warden in a BOSH Release

This morning, I was trying to wrangle our CI/CD pipeline for the Containers BOSH Release so that I could cut a 1.1.0 release and generally forget about the process of integration testing. Our stock pipeline architecture for BOSH releases runs a deployment test by taking a manifest — either the example manifest or a CI-specific
